Rams schedule pre-draft visit with Lehigh G Will Rackley

New, comments

The St. Louis Rams have their third confirmed pre-draft workout/visit scheduled. Lehigh OG Will Rackley will visit the team's facility on April 13. That news comes from Josh Buchanan of JB Scouting, the non-FBS guru. Rackley also mentioned his visit with the Rams and some other NFL teams in his draft journal posted on Buchanan's site. 

So who is Will Rackley? At 6'4" 309 lbs, he measures a little like Jacob Bell; both players have a 33 inch wing span too. He even has Bell's haircut. Rackley played tackle in the college, but will move to the inside in the NFL. Reportedly, he stands tall off the snap and doesn't move his feet well enough to play OT in the pros. Rackley is strong, gets good leverage and uses his hands well. NFL Draft Scout ranks him the 5th best guard in the draft and gives him a third round grade. 

The Rams are definitely looking at interior linemen. In addition to Rackley's visit, they had a private workout for Baylor OG Danny Watkins this week. 

Missouri DE Aldon Smith also has a pre-draft workout scheduled with the Rams. For now, those are the only three confirmed pre-draft sessions for the Rams, but that will change, if it hasn't already, in the weeks ahead.

Here's a video from his pro day.
